Challenges Help

Anyone discovered a way to reset the challenges?

Right now I have to "Win a Standoff with only a High Card."

Seriously.... I can't re-roll this? That's so improbable.

I am in the same boat. I have to win a showdown with a better kicker.

Unfortunately no way to get new challenges. It's either finish them or delete your save and start over from scratch.

Yeah, there's no way to reset these. I'm also stuck trying to win a showdown with a kicker. I've been really close several times (those ended in ties), and the AI has beaten me in a showdown with a better kicker, but I can't seem to get it...yet.

I started a new save. It'll take me less time to get back to where I was.

If the bounty shows up again, I can dashboard to get a new set of bounties. So far, I have gotten myself 4 sets of easy bounties. Much nicer.

I did dash trick and it just keeps pulling up same 2 sets of challenges so I'm guessing you need to do it for one of the bounties

I get new sets every time. I just keep dashboarding until I don't have stupid challenges that have to do with certain hands and showdowns.

Are there any other tips besides deleting the save? I've literally earned all 4 from the players, and completed 2/3 for GlaDoSs, the last one being "Win a Showdown with only a High Card". I really don't want to have to delete and restart if possible, being that I am so close to my fifth skin.

Only thing to do is hope you get lucky and win a showdown with a high card. Honestly, it will take me less time to completely restart and earn everything again than to try and finish that bounty.

My last challenge set included winning a showdown with a high card (as well as buying everyone drinks.)

Best way I can suggest getting this is by bluffing on the blind, if you happen to draw an Ace or King. Go all in, and if things don't work out when the last card is drawn, dashboard it. If you go all in on the first round, I noticed someone will always try and go against you. I guess I got lucky the one time I tried that technique, because I won with the Ace high.

edit - Figured it out. For anyone else who might be a lil confused by it.

For the 'Steal a hand on the flop' challenge (and I'm assuming it'll probably be on the turn/river, as well) you basically have to make everyone who is in at the time, fold and 'steal' the pot. Don't know why I didn't think of that in the first place.

It would be nice if we could trade inventory tokens to reset some of these challenges. "Win standoff with a high card" took me forever to get and now I have it again.

Well I took your advice and it was quicker deleting my save and then using the dash trick to regain all the bounties again with easy challenges. Took me about 4hours and although I had all the achievements apart from the GLADOS one I ended up with just over 900k in the bank and just the Army of Darkness table left to unlock. I guess you could get the full 400g in 5hours

Anyway glad to have finished this now. That challenge would have been the end of my 360 pad

I had this exact problem, and I didn't do xhunterrrr's method. I've been doing ohama all the way, and get to 1 million. Then I started a new tournament using texas hold em, eliminating one by one until I am against the last person.

Then fold all the way until you get k or a, then check. DO NOT GO ALL IN or BET, increasing the chance he'll fold too.

If the last person is about to be eliminated..just dashboard and try again until you get what you want for a high card.

This took me almost one hour getting this last bounty done after reaching a million dollar achievement...so not bad at all!

Except to do all in until two people call, not really (or if two people go all in, call whatever the hand you have).

The showdown with a high card is easy. Play the hand that have an ace or king and go all in (bests are oneS with an ace).

You'll often win with ace high.

I need help for this one too. I would assume that both the player and an opponent would get the same card build and the ace kicker in the player's hand would trump all who try to oppose the player. That's just a theory so far. Is anyone a poker pro so we could confirm that?

I have won several hands with a pair and a high card. Mostly aces and it doesn't count. I have had claptrap beat me several times with me having a king and he has an ace and the rest of the cards did not make a hand. However the same thing will not happen to me.

This challenge is bullshit. Last acheivement i need is glados' bounty and this challenge is the only thing stopping me.

I hate that we can't reset them. I've been stuck at 2/3 challenges for multiple tournaments now. The computer doesn't want to give me a flush or full house anymore. I won plenty of showdowns before with these before I got this particular challenge.

Solution! A kicker is basically the trump card.

Ex. Texas Hold em: The player has a 4 and a J while Brock has a 4 and a 7.The cards drawn are an A, A, K, K, 3. So both players will have two pair but the player will win the showdown with the Jack kicker.

Also the "Steal a hand at the river" basically means to steal the hand after the final card has been drawn. It's best to bluff and go All In and hope that everyone will fold.

Thanks for this - I had the "steal a hand on the river" challenge, and wasn't sure how to get it, so I did what u suggested and got it right away! Now I can 100% this game

Some of the challenges were kinda ridiculous. I just went to dash and restarted until I got 3 challenges I could all get in one game.

Just had a ton of trouble getting that "win with high card" one. I just got it out of sheer luck since I kinda decided to just keep playing and quit once I got all the other achievements. With that last challenge down I'm on my way to a 100% completion
